And this is the reason...

...why I HAD TO finish Home is Where You Hang.... on friday. I got my order from Des Filles et une Aiguille in France.
I ordered late Friday night, she assembled it and shipped it out on Saturday and it was here exactly a week later on Friday. That is sooooo fast. And I was surprised to see that she really cuts the threads in the lenghts of your order (she sells Fils Atalie by meter). And how carefully she labeled every colour... I am thrilled to see with how much love she handled my small order. Please excuse my dark friday night pictures...


I did a little floss toss on 40ct Shale by Picture This Plus:


and on 40ct natural Zweigart:


Saturday when I finally had stitching time I decided on the 40ct natural linen and started winding the silks and cottons when suddenly the doorbell rang and friends came visiting with us......
So guess who got up early in the morning today to get started on La Vie en Bleu? LOL

Love the colors on this one! It'll be fun to follow your progress! Don't you love getting up early in the morning when it's quiet and the day is yours alone for just a little while?
